What we measure
Intestinal Permeability • Stool
Understand your personal risk for how easily particles can pass through your intestinal wall based on your microbiome composition.
Gut Dysbiosis • Stool
Measures the presence of any dysbiosis – an imbalance in the bacteria in the gut. An optimal balance of gut bacteria is associated with health, wellness, and a reduced risk of various disease conditions.
Digestion • Stool
Learn how your age, prescription medications, over-the-counter products, surgery, injuries, and various lifestyle factors can impact your digestive capabilities.
Inflammation • Stool
Understand your personal risk for inflammation and patterns of inflammatory activity.
Enteric Nervous System Imbalance • Stool
Learn how your bacterial makeup impacts the real-time communication between your gut and brain and how it affects your autonomic and central nervous systems, nutrient metabolism, sleep, mood, food cravings, stress levels, and more.
Diversity • Stool
The quality and the quantity of the microbes in your gut influence multiple metrics of health, weight, and metabolism, as well as your personal risk for disease. Your Beta-Diversity score compares your microbiome to the healthy microbiomes of others.
Micronutrients • Stool
This is the score associated with your gut’s capability to produce folate (vitamin B9), vitamin B6, vitamin B12, and niacin (vitamin B3) based on the makeup of your microbiome.
Short-Chain Fatty Acids • Stool
Short-chain fatty acids (SCFA) help maintain a normal level of inflammation in the gut, while also supporting the gut’s immune function. Your score reflects the capability of your gut to produce SCFA based on your gut’s microbial composition.
Immune Readiness • Stool
Your gut’s microbial composition plays a key role in keeping you healthy when you are confronted with immune stressors. Your score is derived from an advanced proprietary equation.
Pathogens • Stool
Pathogens in the air, food, and drinking water can cause immediate and undesirable symptoms. Your sample is screened for 11 undesirable pathogens, including viruses and parasites.
